Cottage On The Bay
Waterfront home was built on one of the premier lots in Alton Bay around 1902 and has been owned by the same family since 1918.
Looking for Peace and Quiet? This house is very private and quiet as the rear of the property is 4 acres of woods. The property itself is 4.5 acres total.
Boater? Bring your boat and park your trailer in the driveway, or rent a boat from one of the many Marinas around the lake. Park it on the dock on property for your stay. Take the Canoe on site out for a nice ride if you'd like.
Looking for Adventure? Bring an ATV or rent one to try out the many long trails around the lake. Travel a short distance to Weirs Beach or Alton Bay by land or water and have a blast with numerous attractions and come home and relax on the porch.
Have Young Kids who love to swim? Bring them down to the beach on property. The shore is very sandy and the sand bar extends 150 yards from shore and allows for a large, sandy, shallow swimming area.
============== House Details ==============
The house has been modernized, but still retains the old cottage feel. It has a screened in porch facing the water on the west side of Alton Bay which affords excellent views of Lake Winnipesaukee and plentiful morning sun.
The private driveway places this house over 800 feet from the highway through woods. There is an abundance of parking next to the house on the same level as the main floor, and the main floor is accessed by a single six inch step.
On the main (first floor) there is a bedroom in the back with a twin bed and a twin-over-full bunk bed. The completely rebuilt full bath is located on the first floor and now includes the washer and dryer. The second floor has a half bath and three bedrooms, all with queen beds.
The house is fully furnished. The kitchen is fully equipped with new appliances, dishes, silverware and place settings for 10+ persons. Please note that renters must provide their own bed linens and towels.
The beach is located about 40 feet from the house via a concrete and stone stair way. (Vertical distance is about 20 feet.)
The boathouse has two outside docks available to the tenant which will accommodate up to 26-30' boats. The North dock has a depth of 2-2.5' while the South dock has a depth of closer to 3-4'. The sandy beach opens onto a shallow sand bar which extends for 100 feet into the lake with a depth of about 4-6 feet. This is an excellent and safe place for young children to swim in shallow water, but be slow and cautious with boats.
In 2017, the full bath on the first floor was given a new stand-up washer/dryer unit. In 2015, the full bath on the first floor was completely rebuilt and enlarged. In 2014, this house was equipped with a brand new dishwasher along with new toilets, and in 2007, was equipped with all new appliances including a new refrigerator and ceramic top electric range stove.
The cabin contains a propane-fueled baseboard heating system and instant hot water supply.
For rainy day entertainment there is a 50' Plasma TV in the living room with Hulu+, Netflix, HBO, Amazon Streaming, Limited Local Channels and more.
